She is hoping that her husband will be able to join the family under the One Year Window sometime soon. The boys are now in kindergarten and grade one, while Ruta is attending school to upgrade her education and is also studying English, first aid and has gotten her Food Safe certificate. The photo is in the Rossland ESL class she attends with AKK and LLS.

Rahaf Zwayne, a young Syrian woman, arrived on May 2016 - privately sponsored by a local couple with the help of our group.  She is currently attending Selkirk College with her education for this year paid for by a bursary provided by the faculty. She hopes to some day sponsor her father and brother who are still in Turkey.
